Podcast with Author Joe Brocato on the Declaration’s “Pursuit of Happiness”
Topic: Young People and the American Dream.
The Declaration of Independence says our rights as Americans are the right to life, to liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? But today, Is the American Dream dead today? Are many disillusioned with it, as if it’s a false promise, especially our youth? The Publius National Post writes: “Why Are So Many Young People Rejecting The Idea of the American Dream? Sixty-five percent of Gen Zers and 74% of millennials say they believe they are starting further behind financially than earlier generations at their age.” Joe Brocato is the author of the book, Hit It Off: 21 Rules for Mastering the Art and Science of Relationships In Life and Business. Brocato says, “The American Dream should always empower every American—no matter one’s age—the ability to proposer based on one’s abilities and efforts. Politicians and the electorate alike have not adequately prioritized the importance of the American Dream. Maintaining the American Dream requires two fairly simple efforts.” Joe Brocato joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss achieving the American dream. www.hititoffthebook.com
